About the 2006 Rip Curl Gromsearch


Rip Curl is forever on the Search for surfing’s hottest future stars. The GromSearch Series is our window into the grommet world and we want the world’s best youngsters to get involved.

GromSearch events are for male and female surfers under the age of 16, and are all about having fun and surfing with your friends. Running in 7 regions around the globe, GromSearch encourages the young surfers of the world to compete in a fair and friendly environment.

Now in its fifth year, the GromSearch Tour has set the benchmark for the ultimate youth competitive surfing platform, combining a high-performance, professional environment with a unique double-elimination format that enables all groms (male and female, 16 and under) to have more than one shot of making the finals and nabbing the fresh loot of prizes that are at stake for each venue.

As in previous years, the top finishers in each regional event will receive the big invite to compete in the coveted National Final, being held later this year at Salt Creek, Cali. The winner of the boys 16/U and Girls 16/U will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Bells Beach, Australia to duke it out in the Rip Curl International GromSearch Final smack dab in the middle of the WCT Rip Curl Pro.

Slots for each event are filling up fast, so download your entry form here (http://www.ripcurl.com/gromsearch). Any information inquiries, please email gromsearch@ripcurl.com or call the GromSearch hotline: 714-422-3635.
